Which they first did on 3/1/69 and 2/11/69. Incidently how come 2/11/69 isn't on the archive in any form?

And it's freakin' terrible. Pig singing Hey Jude???. The Beatles did perform it live on British television in front of a small studio audience. Do not know the date though.

The Beatles Hey Jude was shown on TV in America on 10/6/68 I believe. It was taped for showing on British and American TV. The Beatles were no longer doing public concerts so it was really a treat seeing them live in a TV studio at least. A week later they put out "Revolution" on TV, 10/13/68. From the day "Hey Jude" was released as a single in late 1968 through much of 1969 that song was constantly on the radio. For months on end I can still remember hearing it at least once every hour it seems. I remember my cousin saying goodbye to us all shipping out for Vietnam as it was playing on the radio. A real anthem at the time. It was one of the first 45 RPM singles I ever bought.
Shortly after "Hey Jude" came out, Wilson Pickett released an R&B version of it that became a hit on the R&B radio stations

In defense of Grateful Dead's version of Hey Jude it must be noted that the Dead weren't really covering The Beatles arrangement. Pigpen used the Wilson Pickett arrangement of Hey Jude as his model. The "Wicked" Pickett's studio version of Hey Jude had a guitar solo on it that turned a few heads, including Eric Clapton's head. The solo was played by an unknown Muscle Shoals studio guitarist by the name of Duane Allman. Wilson Pickett nicknamed Duane Allman "Sky Man" which later evolved into "Sky Dog".

it is pretty bad. but hey not everything went well. and the fact they tried speaks volumes about a band who were at their peak in terms of confidence if not ability...

pretty bad indeed...worse than Samba???

As much as I enjoy Pig, he should've left Hey Jude alone. Out of both his "comfort zone" and his vocal range.

Yep--at least they waited til the end to do it!

You know, what's bizarre is that it is a "Donna-esque" event (ie, we now seem to know that even she hears what she did back then and cringes, and everyone offers input as to how it happened that she would be off key, irritating, etc.).

So, though we know that Ron was not as "quality control conscious" as the rest of the band (I mean really--Jerry and Bob and Phil are always going on about the monitors...suggesting quite obviously that they had to hear themselves so they'd know if they were "off" and so on), but how could this have happened? Did Ron say "hey, I can do THAT" and no one immediately observed, or at least after he sang one verse, "ahem, NO, you cannot!" or even just hinted at that? Did they finally tell him after a few more times--well, the two times anyhow (did they practice it?)? Did he realize it on his own?

Interesting...
